Christmas in Bethlehem

Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey! Without your love, prayers, and support, I would absolutely not be here. Know that I'm thinking of you this Christmas.

Being in Bethlehem during the Christmas season has been both awe-inspiring and incredibly upsetting.
Here are some images that are present in or reflective of Bethlehem this Christmas.

 I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas, and a totally restful break from work/school/normal life.
